Saving Digital History: A Quick and Dirty Guide, by Jason Scott (Hope 2004 Conference)


Published July 11, 2004


From the H2K4 Program: "Knowledge doesn't move forward without history and while there have been many steps to capture the stories, lore, and data of different aspects of computer cultures, a lot of the same mistakes are made over and over. In a fast-paced talk, Jason Scott of textfiles.com busts out some ideas, tools, and mindsets towards halting the loss, bringing the stories back, and making something to build upon instead of throw away. Along the way, expect a few bucketloads of trivia and memories to sauce up the proceedings."

Taped with a Canon XL-1 at the Fifth Hope Conference, held in the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City from July 9th to 11th, 2004.
